This week on A Tale of Two Hygienists TIPisode we are joined by Stephanie Botts, RDH who is a clinical hygienist and ergonomic specialist. Today Stephanie talks to us about microbreaks, highlighting their importance and how to implement them into your routine.

“It is all the little things that we are doing in the op that add up at the end of the week, month or year.”
“84% of dentists report pain or discomfort while working and 86% of hygienists.”
“After work is what is really important to me.”
“A microbreak is a short 20-30 second stretch break that you take every 20 minutes.”
“Microbreaks have been shown to reduce pain and fatigue in dental professionals.”
